Blue Gate Restaurant Shipshewana IN Dinner Saturday September 22, 7 PM

Just three short months until our cross country trip to New Mexico. We will be stopping at various Roadfood establishments along the way. We will be at the Blue Gate Restaurant for dinner on Saturday September 22 and are hoping that perhaps some of the Chicago contingent folks would like to join us. If so, please post here. It would be great to see everyone again.

wanderingjew,
 
Did I miss your post for the September 23 Eat & Greet at Firecakes Donuts? We would definitely meet you for that one. I'm hoping for a Firecakes Crawl to all of their locations.

Sorry- we will be in the Quad Cities (or Des Moines) not 100% certain yet....

Wow, just wow.
 
The owners of Firecakes Donuts will be deeply offended by this slight. Although, as they admit on their website, Firecakes are NOT Regionally Appropriate for Chicagoland.
 
What's going on in the Quad Cities? That may be more tempting.

I believe he's going to the location of the former Riefe's Restaurant, where he will shake his fist in the air and curse the heavens.

Actually- it's even more exciting- we will be going to the ORIGINAL location of the Iowa Machine shed for lunch. Sandra missed her opportunity for an Iowa Chop last fall due to TMJ issues- a year later she will no longer have those issues.
We'll be doing some sightseeing too- The John Deere Pavilion in Moline and the Mississippi River visitors center in Rock Island before heading to Prairie City for BPT's at Goldie's Ice Cream Shop. From there we'll be staying in Pella overnight so we can walk around the following morning

So far we have Chibears15 and The Roadhouses  as "possibles"
We're still two months out so hopefully there might be others that can join us.

For dinner?
I think the only time I ordered coffee at the Machine Shed was as a mere accessory to the Ginormous Cinnamon Roll

Unless I'm at a good independent coffee house, I usually don't acknowledge what is served to me as coffee. I probably either had just gone to or was planning to visit either Java Joe's or Zanzibar since I was in Des Moines.
I've never had the mountain but I recall you mentioning it several times... Unfortunately we will not have time, and especially stomach space to make it to Ross Restaurant...If you remember Sandra...she's certainly no ChiTownDiner.

I suspect both Sandra and Patti would tie for last place in a ChiTownDiner  spreadsheet competition.

ChiTownDiner just clued me into this gathering.  Although I am not a member of the Contingent if you have room I would love to join you. 
 
Shipshewana and the Blue Gate is a mere 20 minutes from my home.
 
If you have time in "Shipshe" I would recommend you visit Yoder's Meats and the Davis Mercantile for some great little shops.  The block on the east side of the Blue gate has quite a few little shops to stroll through as well.  A fun place to visit.
 
Thanks,
Rocky Enfield

We would love to have you join us... And you don't have to be a card carrying member of the contingent...
I look forward to meeting you and please follow the thread for updates on the exact meet up time (probably 7pm ish)
We're going to be spending most of our time in Cleveland that day before we take the drive to Northern Indiana, Sandra always wanted to go to the national Polka hall of fame in Suburban Cleveland  so that will be our opportunity.
 
I see you're looking for recommendations in KY and Nashville. I'll provide some suggestions when I get home from work.

My wife and I are leaving for Vegas, Arizona and Utah on the 23rd but, I think I can convince her into letting me slip away for dinner the night before we leave.

I'll pm you with my contact info shortly.
I was just in Utah this past April, so I will be happy to share some Roadfood recommendations with you

Well we're now a month away from the beginning of our big trip.
I'll post the official meet up time and get a final headcount probably a week or two before we begin our trip

Just a short two weeks away. I have updated the time for our meet up. So far it looks like Rocky Enfield will be joining us and I'm still awaiting confirmation from ChiBears15.

With everything going on in our lives right now (Sandra and I) I know this will come quickly

We'll be sure to drop him off at your doorstep for milk and cookies  afterwards if Chi Town Diner is not home.
